After a few years without a story-infused Ghost Recon game, Ubisoft officially unveiled the next entry in the tactical shooter series, Ghost Recon Wildlands.
The setup for Wildlands involves the Ghosts, a U.S. Elite Special Operations team at the heart of every Ghost Recon game, attempting to break alliances the cartel has with the government of Bolivia in relation to cocaine production. Even though the team isn’t all that new, the open world approach of Wildlands is new, as players are now given the ability to complete missions in any order and in any approach they want. Even the time of day is taken into account when attempting to complete a mission, something players should be aware of.
Helping players complete missions are a number of vehicles, such as boats, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, and helicopters, though Wildlands might include even more vehicle types.
Even though players can play the game by themselves, Wildlands enables four-player co-op while playing in different environments. These environments can vary from civilian areas, to mountainous regions, to swamps. Interestingly, while the story involves the Bolivian government, the reveal trailer highlighted other parts of South America, as well as North America and Europe. In addition, players will “face countless difficult decisions,” which can lead to “tangible – and often unexpected – consequences for enemies and allies alike.”
Ghost Recon Wildlands will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with no release date or release window announced.
